Excellent- sympathetic and well informed and not patronising Having seen several Endocrinologists over the last 10 years, I can honestly say that Dr Vassilika has offered and provided more direct intervention than others and offers a service that no Generalist GP would come close to
Felt comfortable during every discussion I’ve had with Dr. Bravis and definitely feel in safe hands. I have left the sessions, that we have had, being very clear on what was discussed.
Overall a great experience.
Dr Bravis was punctual for our video consultation. She explained the condition well and was very approachable, patient and friendly. It was easy to make an appointment with her via her secretary. I got the report within two days. I would recommend Dr Bravis.
I completely and wholeheartedly recommend Dr Bravis. She really took the time to to talk me through her ideas and discuss them. She is so great at really listening and (with her great assistant) brilliant at following up. I'm 100% confident with her advice.
Excellent service. Secretary very responsive
The appointment was very thorough and detailed. The doctor was very helpful and listened to all queries.
Dr. Bravis took time to explain my condition very clearly, answer all of my questions and took into consideration my lifestyle.
Dr Bravis is an extremely professional and genuinely caring person. I had some of issues explained to me that a number of doctors didn’t know the answers to. I am greatly impressed by Dr Bravis knowledge and demeanour.
Dr Bravis was really helpful. Great bed-side manner. Very on top of research and current approaches.
Dr Bravis was very helpful and suggested taking further tests to find the cause of my current condition
Very professional and caring
Lovely caring lady. Instills confidence immediately.
I think she was very attentive, accurate and caring.
Dr Bravis - was great! Very patient, understanding and I felt she was really doing her job and wanted to help me rather than just reciting of medical jargon and expecting me to understand!
I immediately warmed to Vassiliki which inspired a great deal of confidence. I found her to be really pleasant, obviously very knowledgeable and exceptionally capable of explaining her thoughts and future plans. I would have no doubts whatsoever in recommending her as an excellent and approachable doctor.
